Mango Chutney Chicken

South Africa map_1Coming back from a marvelous trip to the Cape Provinces of South Africa and having enjoyed their wonderful cuisine, I want to share some recipes from this part of the world with my readers. Enjoy and have fun while cooking.

The cuisine of South Africa can be generalized as:

Cookery practiced by indigenous people of Africa such as the Sotho- and Nguni-speaking people.

Cookery that emerged from several waves of colonisation and immigration introduced during the colonial period by white European people of Dutch (since 1652), German, French, Italian, Greek and British (since 1805~1820) descent and their Indo-Asian slaves or servants – this includes the cuisine of the so-called Cape Malay people, which has many characteristics of Indonesia and cooking styles from neighboring colonial cultures such as Portuguese Mozambique.

Mango ChutneyIngredients

  • 6 – 8 chicken thighs
  • 1 jar hot mango chutney
  • 1 package dry onion soup mix
  • 1 onion – roughly sliced
  • 10 black olives


Preheat oven to 170° C.

Mango ChickenIn a medium bowl, combine chutney and dry onion soup mix.

Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper to taste.

Place the onions and olives in the bottom of a big enough oven-proof dish, place seasoned chicken pieces on top and pour chutney-onion mixture over them, making sure that all pieces are thoroughly covered.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 75 to 90 minutes, or until chutney sauce has turned brown and crunchy.

Born in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany in 1957, I was educated at a Baccalaureate High School. Later completed Technical University with a degree in Economic Informatics. I served for 12 years in the German Army before joining a French computer company for another 10 years. Then ran my own motorcycle and gastronomy businesses before deciding to retire. I arrived in North Cyprus with my second wife in 2004 and since her sad loss in 2011, I have kept myself very busy trying to help others with similar problems and in 2012 became the Secretary of “The Foreign Residents in the TRNC” (TFR). I am very keen to see expat communities coming together and playing their part in helping North Cyprus, our adopted homeland.
